According to polls, the vast majority of U.S. population supports war, with U.N. ratification. Most of the countries in the U.N. support war at this point; the problem is in the Security Council, where France and Germany are afraid that, if we go to war, we'll find the "Made in France" and "Made in Germany" labels on Hussein's weapons of mass destruction. One point of interest is timing: If the war does not start by the beginning of March, it will likely have to be postponed until the fall.* It is no coincidence that France is pushing for a deadline of March 15, while the U.S. is pushing for a deadline of February 28.

* America's military machine gives it an overwhelming advantage at night; a full moon would remove much of that advantage. There is a new moon on March 1, and a full moon on March 15. By April 15, the temperature in Iraq will get so hot that defense against poison gas will become unusable, so the war has to be over by then. This means that, while there will be another new moon at the end of March, a war can only be won against Iraq if everything goes perfectly (as Hussein's soldiers will almost certainly NOT be protected against poison gas). Considering the cost of keeping the armed forces mobilized in the Middle East, expect a war to start late next week, with or without the U.N.
